I've been using a FreeBSD box for this purpose for almost a year now, and
it works like a champ. I have one legitimate IP address, and I'm using an
RFC1918 space for the rest of the home net. The only problem I've had is
that with this arrangement you can't use DNS locally. What I'm doing is
setting all the other machines to use the FreeBSD router box as their
primary DNS server as well as gateway; then set up the FreeBSD box with an
/etc/hosts file which has all my local machines' IPs. Also, make sure your
router box is configured to look first at /etc/hosts, second to DNS for
I don't know from cable modems; my ISP is promising to have DSL available RSN.
Hmm... this "Spam-B-Gone" doesn't seem to work...
What would happen if I pulled the plug on the Reality Engine?

Is there anyone in the joplin mo area who would be willing to help me ste up
a linux or free bsd machine i am not a programer .I cant be completly
retarded i can make windoze 95 or 98 work on 99% of machines i install it
on. i would like to move to linux or bsd but i do better with a bit of help.

to get x to run .I imagine it is something simple that iam missin but it
